    I am so tired here at the office. Yesterday, I joined a couple of friends to take a ride not knowing I'll be dealing with Category 3 and 4 climbs.

    Anyways, what you're seeing in the signature is correct. I'm waiting for a case + USB-C adapter to arrive and then I'll set it up for a test drive.

    First impressions are very positive so far...

    If the breeder didn't feed those cats appropriately, i wouldn't be surprised that what you saw was a survival instinct kicking in, with both cats working together or independently to ensure they get food. I hope they grow out of it, but don't be surprised if they don't.

    This is why I'm not a fan of cruelty overall, and especially towards animals or little children.

    Cruelty is horrible and when I see stories about it on TV it's heart wrenching and to be honest I'm not a fan of breeders. Most are in it just for the money and nothing else.

    I don't think the breeder we got the cats off was being intentionally cruel but I think she was scrimping. Russian Blues are dainty looking in general but should not be bone thin. They had their neutering operations not too long ago so that could have been a factor as well. I don't know.

    She did say she was only feeding them one half packet of food each and using the dry food as their main source. That's really not enough food for an adult cat but I have heard of cats living on nothing but dry food, which generally isn't that good for them.

    We'll fatten them up anyway and make sure they're content. Just need to train them to realise that night time is bed time for us.... I know, good luck with that. :P

    Also, Russian Blues are noted for being fairly intelligent cats and bond with their owners. We used to play fetch with our Russian Blue we had in Australia.

    To add to the story I wrote, the cat purposely put the food in the back corner of the litter tray (it's a covered tray) to hide it. So there was intent on the cat's part to get the food, hide and eat it later. The two were in cahoots with the whole thing as well. Yeah, she'll be a handful for sure. :P

    That reminds me of a cat who belongs to the owner of a pest control shop in my neighborhood.

    He is a black cat, but he is tiny. He isn't underweight, just undersized. If one didn't know better, the assumption would be that he were a kitten around 6 months old. However, he is 2 years old.

    He wandered into the pest control shop, and the owner adopted him. He is healthy, well fed and well treated, but very small.

    He's a very friendly cat. When I stopped by the shop a couple months ago, he rubbed my leg and purred a storm.

    Underfed cats tend to be smaller simply because they haven't eaten well. These two are fairly small for Russian Blues but not exceptionally small. They're just petite. Which is not a bad thing in some cases.

    This to me is innovation. They best way for Continuum to work. It's a beast of a device though. But to me this is where the future is. You want the best way for Continuum to work, what better way than having a built in monitor?

    Yup. I'm waiting for when he starts having to do other people's work and not get paid for it, having to work more when colleagues call out, when colleagues try to throw him under the bus when **** goes slideways, the first cute girl he works with that he notices more than her watch, etc.

    If he's feeling now, he'll **** a few bricks after those experiences...

    I always thought that was neat teaching a dog or cat to use the toilet. So much more efficient.
